More

The EMX-2401 is a three-slot PXI Express embedded PC controller that enables compact test systems which combine instrumentation and host in a single mainframe. Using GPIB, USB, and LAN with the build-in front panel interfaces, the EMX-2401 simplifies communication with other instruments and integration into a hybrid test systems. The EMX-2401 is based on the Intel® Core™ i5 processor, and is ideal for electronic test or data acquisition applications that are processor-intensive or require multi-tasking environments. 

The embedded controller supports Microsoft Windows operating systems and can be purchased with Windows 7 64-bit operating system pre-installed. 

The EMX-2401 comes with various peripheral ports that allow it to be easily integrated into a hybrid test system. The front panel-mounted ExpressCard/34 expansion slot allows users to connect an additional PXI Express mainframe to the controller using a PXIe to ExpressCard bridge. Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports provide one port for LAN connection and the other for controlling LXI instruments. A Micro-D GPIB connector is available for legacy devices. Four USB 2.0 ports are available to connect keyboard, mouse, DVD drives and other peripheral devices. The SMB bi-directional trigger connector on the front-panel can be used to route an external trigger signal to/from the PXI backplane. The trigger bus line that the trigger signal is routed to can be programmatically selected 

The embedded controller is designed to operate at the temperature between 0 and 55°C and to be stored at the temperature between -20 to 70°C. The wide range of the operating temperature and storage temperature makes the EMX-2401 ideal for many test and measurement applications.
